There are some interesting projects taking place along the Orbital route. One excellent example is the Hunslet 3193, a steam locomotive undergoing restoration in the goods yard at Yaxham railway station by members of the Norfolk Heritage Steam Railway Ltd.
One of our website editors, Paul Young, met up recently with two members of the Norfolk Heritage Steam Railway Ltd. Chairman Charlie Cooley and Secretary/Treasurer David Bramhall.

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters we recently met the challenge of having to pay the next installment towards the purchase of the land at High Kelling.
The land we have purchased is contained within the belt and we are now looking at Pt1300 which leads up to the Holt Bypass.
Together with the initial stretch of land we purchased from the County Council some time ago this means that we have reached the halfway mark towards purchasing this first part of the railway route and the prospect of getting into Holt. We face many challenges ahead and we will keep everyone informed but this is good news which we wanted to share with you now.
